(Learn) How to Cut “Family Ties”
As it relates to family ties, and what we really owe our tribe, while blood may be thicker than water, consciousness is thicker than blood.
What do I mean?
Just because you share the same DNA or bloodline with someone, doesn’t necessarily mean that you will share the same beliefs, values, or ideas for living. And just because someone clothed and sheltered you for the first years of your life, doesn’t mean you owe them, or their opinions, time and space in your mind.
Now you may be thinking…
“Morgan, you don’t understand, this is my “family.” I have to follow their rules/ideas, or they’ll disown me.” And I get it, I really do. But, as you will see when you watch this video, you only believe that (you need them) because of the programming they gave you, which is the programming that they received too.
You see, not too many generations ago, sticking with our family or tribe was key to our survival, or success in life. The more family members who could work a farm or run a textile, for example, meant more food or profits for all involved. But today, most of us can provide some kind of food and shelter on our own, so the need to stick with our family, as a means of survival, is no longer as great.
However, regardless of these advances, the idea that families must stick together as the “ideal way of life” is still very much a part of mainstream thinking, even though there are many other viable options.
That said, before I go on, I want to be very clear, I AM NOT ANTI-FAMILY.
I just know how many people need mental, emotional, and in some cases, physical relief from certain family members. And their belief that they MUST stick together because they’re “family”, is actually doing more harm than good.
Take for instances my clients that inspired today’s episode of #AskMysMorgan. Each of them is currently in the process of choosing to let go of a parental relationship, or at the very least, re-define it. In each of these instances, the parent was decent enough while they were children, but the adult relationship is seriously lacking. And the weight of trying to carry the relationship is creating unnecessary stress.
So I’ve been working with both to help heal their beliefs around what their relationships need to be, with the same insights and techniques I share in this video, so that both you, and they, can feel more happy and free.
Now I’d love to hear from you…
Is there a family member that you’d love to say “good-bye” to, but just can’t? Or maybe you have a parental relationship that needs to be redefined, but you’re not sure how to do it. If there’s a family relationship in your life that’s causing you stress, please leave your comments or questions below, and I’ll be sure to address it. And who knows, your question could be one that helps not only you, but someone else struggling with the same situation.
